Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Classified -

ASH­FORD Town man­ager Steve Lovell has called on his side to per­form as a col­lec­tive and cut out the in­di­vid­ual mis­takes that con­tinue to af­fect their re­sults, af­ter the Nuts and Bolts lost 5-3 at Great Wak­er­ing Rovers in the FA Tro­phy on Satur­day.

“We have an in­di­vid­ual de­fen­sive prob­lem,” Lovell ad­mit­ted. “A pat­tern has emerged in that we have a lot of the play, cre­ate plenty of chances, score goals but then gift the op­po­si­tion goals.

“We can’t leg­is­late for in­di­vid­ual de­fen­sive er­rors, but we can work on it col­lec­tively, and that’s what we are do­ing this week in prepa­ra­tion for the week­end.” Ash­ford travel to sec­ond placed Cray Wan­der­ers on Satur­day, be­fore tak­ing on Lovell’s old team Sit­ting­bourne at Home­lands on Tues­day.

“In­di­vid­u­ally we have one of the best squads in the league,” Lovell said. “We’ve just got to start putting it to­gether col­lec­tively.

“Ex­pec­ta­tions are high at the club, but our start hasn’t been too bad. We are in a de­cent po­si­tion and we’ve just got to try and push for­ward.”

Jimmy Bot­tle is the only ab­sen­tee for this week­end as he con­tin­ues his re­cov­ery from a head in­jury.
